Ideally, the standard recognized name for the format of the object. In any case, a material designation which more specifically describes the type of physical object within the broader structure type ("source type") of photographic, three-dimensional object, etc. For example, sourceType "three-dimensional object" is more specifically described here as either a 'manmade object' or 'naturally occurring artifact.' Film is described here in terms of the specific element (original track negative, kinescope print, etc.). For videotape; videodisc; audiotape; optical disc; analog disc; cylinder; and wire recording: this field is intended to allow the inputter to readily identify a format by visual inspection, with the system populating certain physical description fields based on the selection. This reduces inputting errors and effort. For example, a value of "78 rpm" for the analogDisc source type could populate the shape, diameter, soundField, noiseReduction, speedDesignated, grooveOrientation, and grooveCreationMethod elements. Controlled vocabularies are in development for some media types. Use free-text if no controlled vocabulary is provided below.
